Mungall doing an ‘excellent’ job

Given Mr. Hall’s political leanings, this is success!

RE: Michelle Mungall’s reelection and subsequent stories in the Star.

I can only surmise that Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall is doing an excellent job representing her constituents’ issues if the only criticism that the Nelson Star, and specifically editor Bob Hall, can come up with is that she doesn’t schedule meetings with Nelson’s mayor.

Given Mr. Hall’s political leanings, this is success!

And as for, Mr. Garbula, I didn’t appreciate the condescension in his post-election interview. Nelson-Creston residents already like their representation and if Mr. Garbula wants to suggest that electing a Liberal is the better way to go, he only has to review their performance (Jumbo, our hospitals, education) over the last 12 years to know why we aren’t likely to elect a So-Cred (er, I mean Liberal) MLA any time soon.

Perhaps if he wants to win in this riding, he should consider seeking the NDP nomination in the future.
